Peter Jackson spent 25 years at the Telegram, where he used to write a regular column.
Now he's decided to come over to the dark side and offer his opinions online through a blog. These are early days for the Elite. He only has one post up so far. Get into the habit of reading him early on. Peter is the kind of guy you won't always agree with but you can count on him bringing his strongly-held views to the table every time.
If we are lucky, Peter will do more than just clack out opinion pieces. His wife is a talented artist in her own right and between the pair of them, Townie Elite could evolve into an eclectic mix of music, writing, politics, journalism, and philosophy.
